Low-Carb Fruits

The Best Fruit to Reach For on a Low-Carb Diet

Ditching bagels and pasta on your low-carb diet is a pretty good idea since they're made with refined flour, but forgoing all fruits? Not only will you miss out on the healthy nutrients and filling fibre that can help you consume fewer calories, but you'll feel completely sad. You don't have to live without that naturally sweet juiciness! Here's a list of low-carb fruits, all with 15 grams of carbs or less.

Fruit Amount (g) Calories Carbs (g)
Blackberries 144 62 14.7
Cantaloupe 170 53 13.7
Clementine 1 fruit 35 8.9
Grapefruit, pink or white 1 medium 41 10.3

Raspberries 75 64 14.7
Strawberries 150 49 11.7

If there's a fruit you crave that's not on this list, just be mindful of the serving size. For example: half a banana has 13.5 grams of carbs, half a cup of blueberries has 10.7 grams of carbs, and half an apple has 12.4 grams of carbs.
